Questionnaire: ‘Swami, kindly clarify whether the statement “Every action has its own reaction” clarified by Swami during the last satsang.’
Swamiji: I wanted to allow this statement with a new understanding: Every reaction carries its own action. Please understand, because you do not know what is action till you achieve completion, all your so-called action is nothing but a reaction of incompletion. So, every reaction has its own action. “Every action has its own reaction” is not a complete statement. Every reaction has its own action, or re-reaction. All action you do out of incompletion is reaction. It is not action. Till you complete, you do not know how the space of action will feel. So, whatever you call as reaction, whatever you call as reaction is nothing but action. Understand, it is nothing but action. Whatever you call as action is nothing but reaction. Whatever you call as reaction is nothing but action.
You may say how the reaction can create action? When it is chaos and something happens after you do something, it can be called only as action. Because, many a time, your reactions don’t cause the reactions you want. It means something else is acting. That has to be called only as action, because it is not the right reaction, your reaction expected. How many of you are getting it? If it is a reaction as you planned, it can be a reaction.
Most of the time, because your action is a reaction of your incompletion, the reaction of your reaction cannot be called as reaction, because it does not bring the reaction you expect. So, it has to be called as action. The reaction to the reaction is not the reaction you expected. So, naturally it can be called only as action.
